Presidential aide, Femi Adesina, has knocked the Senate Minority Leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe, for allegedly using “foul language against those in leadership”.

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity stated this on a Facebook piece on Thursday night.

The presidential spokesman said Abaribe should be “cooling his feet in prison” after he “stood surety for someone bent on the dismemberment of the country”. This is in reference to proscribed IPOB leader, Nanamdi Kanu.

The Senator and two others had stood as sureties for Kanu before he was granted bail by the Federal High Court in Abuja on April 25, 2017.

Abaribe had run into trouble when Kanu jumped bail the same year and fled Nigeria because of the alleged extrajudicial attempt on his life in Abia in September 2017.

The detained IPOB leader is facing terrorism-related charges before Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja and the case had been adjourned to October 21, 2021, for continuation of hearing.

Adesina in the piece titled, ‘Weighty Matters About Our Country’, made a veiled reference to Abaribe saying, “Some people incite violence through words or actions, thus exacerbating the security challenges we have. You wonder where they are from, and why they would further stoke a burning fire with incendiary materials.

“There is one funny Senator who talks about the mismanagement of our diversity as a country, yet he daily uses foul language against those in leadership. He stood surety for someone bent on dismemberment of the country, and when that one vanished, and he should have been cooling his feet in prison, the Senator still spews rubbish. Chief ‘mismanager’ of our diversity.

“And the President had words for him and his ilk, who exist round the country: “We are ready to arrest and prosecute all persons inciting violence through words or action. Our resolve for a peaceful, united, and one Nigeria remains resolute and unwavering…

“The seeds of violence are planted in people’s heads through words. Reckless utterances of a few have led to losses of many innocent lives and destruction of properties.”
